Seculert Appoints Imperva Veteran Ken Paiboon as Vice President of Sales in Americas

Expansion Continues as Seculert Ramps-Up Hiring and Incorporates in U.S.

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- Seculert, the cloud-based advanced threat detection company, today announced the appointment of Ken Paiboon as Vice President Sales, Americas. Ken has an extensive track record in enterprise security and business strategy and will be leading the company's sales operations in the Americas.

Ken joins Seculert from Israeli data security vendor Imperva, where he was one of the first US based employees. During his eight-year tenure with the company he held several positions within sales, most recently serving as the VP of Sales for the Americas. Ken led the Americas sales organization through the company's successful initial public offering, driving all initiatives and strategy in the department. Prior to Imperva, Ken spent six years with OPNET Technologies, which specializes in deep data collection, analytics and root cause diagnosis for application and network performance management.

Launched in 2011, Seculert is a cloud-based advanced threat detection company that discovers malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) that have gone undetected by bypassing existing security solutions. Seculert operates with no software or appliances, resulting in a low total cost of ownership. Because Seculert intercepts and collects actual communications between a customer's network and live botnets, there are no false positives. In July 2012, the company announced it had secured $5.35 million in funding and plans to expand its presence in the U.S.

"We are very happy to have added a seasoned veteran like Ken to our growing team," said Dudi Matot, CEO of Seculert. "He will not only help tell our story, he will help educate companies on the ever-changing threat landscape of malware attacks. Ken will help lead our vision in our expansive network in the Americas, using our foundational expertise in real-time cloud-based malware attack detection."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
